In this program, you will learn about and help to develop the science that informs how we understand and make decisions about the environment. Designed for students interested in ecological systems and how humans impact those systems, this interdisciplinary environmental science degree provides both basic and applied knowledge needed to understand the environment and its associated problems.

Envisioning Solutions

  • The curriculum trains students to be active scientists in the field, gaining vital skills and professional experience.
  • Students conduct independent laboratory and field research in collaboration with highly respected faculty members, often at a level typically reserved for graduate students, using scientific resources one would expect to find at a large research institution.
  • As you work toward your degree, you will gain both basic and applied knowledge of environmental science through fieldwork and internships.
